Your garage floor is one of the hardest-used surfaces in your home. Not only does it need to handle the weight of tires and the friction of constant walking, but it also needs to be resistant to stains and spills. While a concrete floor remains popular, the truth is that concrete can’t really handle the stresses of normal garage use. It absorbs oils, stains, and other chemical spills and can crack easily if hit at the right angle.
An epoxy garage floor offers an excellent alternative to traditional concrete surfaces that is better-looking and more durable. If you’re embarrassed about the state of your existing garage floor, epoxy garage floors may be a better option for your home. Call us at Sucro Painting to see how we can help.
Epoxy is a mixture of resin and hardener that cures into a thick, stable coating that’s durable and long-lasting. Unlike typical garage floor paints that dry as a thin layer on top of the concrete surface, epoxy garage floors cure in a thicker layer and bond to properly prepared concrete.
A garage floor epoxy coating is so appealing because the base resin is transparent, so that the sky’s the limit when it comes to finishes. You can choose from solid colors to faux marble—or anything in between. You can even choose your gloss layer — if you’ve ever wanted a showroom floor in your home, epoxy is the way to go.
While epoxy garage floors are some of the most expensive flooring options, their benefits make the cost worthwhile. Concrete surfaces may be cheaper per square feet initially, but their need for constant maintenance and care can make them an expensive proposition over time.
